FROM THE EDITOR - BERNIE CAWTE Welcome to the summer edition of Pub Mirror, it’s nice to have some summer weather whilst putting this edition together, and some great sporting events too to help keep me sane. I have highlighted a couple of the CAMRA campaigns for your information. Please feel free to join in and comment on them. Get your local pubs involved, as at the end of the day it is in their interests, I would suggest. There are many reasons for the closure of pubs, Beer Tax, Business Rates and just plain greed, but we need to defend our national institutions as best we can.

There are many new pubs too, most tend to be either ‘micro’ pubs or cafe/bar type of establishments. We are here to support all, so if you know of any venue selling real ale, cask or bottled/canned, please let the branch know, either through our pubs officers or via The Branch still has some vacancies on the committee and associated position, so if you want to get more involved please check out these positions: Branch Secretary - to support the Chairperson in ensuring the smooth functioning of the Branch - including its compliance to the Branch’s constitution

We would like to place on record our thanks to the following pubs, for the hospitality shown for our various Branch meetings, activities over the last few months: George Hotel, Hull Ye Olde White Harte, Hull Taphouse, Hull Head of Steam, Hull Holderness Pubs, Campaign Officer - to initiate, stimulate and co-ordinate pub campaigning activities within our Branch area, in line with CAMRA’s aims and policies on pub campaigning. There are a couple more such as Social Secretary and Young Members Contact, roles I think are rather self explanatory. For further information please email

Any contributions for that edition needs to be with the editor by 14th AUGUST 2019 you can email your article to the editor at: Advertising rates are unchanged for the sixth year running and you can advertise on a one off basis or in bulk adverts, discounts are available.

HULL PUBS UPDATE BY JON MAJOR Rugby Tavern, one of only three Samuel Smiths pubs in our area has got new managers. After a brief period of closure it is now open with new managers Vikki Benstead and her partner Reece Price (bottom left) both who are Hull locals. This is their first venture into pub management although Vikki did work on the bar at Hull’s other Samuel Smiths bar Blue Bell and Reece has worked on the bar at several other Hull pubs. I wish them both well in their new management position.

After spending most of this year so far in East Dorset I’m now back in Hull and once again starting to get out and about around Hull. One bar that did open whilst I was away was Brew (below) on the corner of Albion Street

It has recently come to my attention that Parkers on Anlaby Road has now got a handpull ale on which is usually a rotating ale more often than not from the Marston’s range.

and Bond Street. Although it does not sell handpull ales it does have six draught craft ales and stocks a large selection of cans and bottled craft ales from local, national and international breweries. This bar now adds to a very good circuit of real ale bars in the new town area of the city centre joining well established bars like Hop & Vine, Old English Gentlemen, Rugby Tavern, Dram Shop, Punch, Ebenezer Morley, Admiral of the Humber, Britannia Royal Hotel and not forgetting the reopening of New Clarence which you can read more about further in this edition.

Taphouse on Humber Street has now started brewing on the premises. Yorkshire Brewing Co. along with Bone Machine have now started their onsite brewing so another good reason to visit this popular bar to see how the magic happens. One exciting bit of news is Yorkshire Brewing Co is doing a collaboration brew with Sheffield brewery Exit 33 for a brew called Pax commemorating the last wooden keel barge ‘Dorothy Pax’ that sailed between Hull and Sheffield.

There has been a couple of pubs changed hands and they are Manchester Arms on Scale Lane where Mike & Tina who also have Vintage bar on Silver Street have taken it on.

One thing I would like to report on in future editions are the pubs in our area that for some reason, whether it be for footfall or the area where the interest is not for cask ale are stocking bottle condition ale. I have been in a couple of pubs recently for private family or group visits where I’ve not expected much as in real ale but being surprised that they have a selection of bottles to cater for the ale drinker. These pubs realise that rather than sell a cask before it starts deteriorating bottles of ale are the best substitute.

The Highway, Willerby Road informs us that they are now offering a 10% discount for CAMRA card carrying members

I need your help compiling this list so if your local sells bottle condition ale rather than cask let me know. Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

PUBS PRESERVATION SOCIETY FROM KEN SMITH Despite resigning from the post of Pubs Protection Officer last year I have continued to follow and report, both at open meetings and in Pub Mirror, on planning and other related applications for both Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire councils. The net result has been that after some “gentle” persuasion I have decided to take up the role again albeit in a slightly different way. I am delighted to say that following an appeal at the March 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) another member has agreed to step in and join me in the fight to save pubs in our area that are under threat. I will be concentrating on those applications affecting Hull while Geoff Stevens is the new Pubs Protection Officer for the East Riding of Yorkshire. As a result any issues relating to the loss of or changes to pubs in the city can be referred to me using the same contact details as before while Geoff is the person to go to for premises in the East Riding. He can be contacted using the following email erpubsprotection@hull. Full contact details are on Page 3 of this magazine. So as not to “throw him in at the deep end” Geoff and I have been working together for a couple of months, looking at applications for both councils. While Geoff has been trying to get to grips with the intricacies of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and the ERYC Local Plan he has also been of great assistance to me by bringing a new insight to the role of Pubs Protection Officer. He has already suggested new avenues to explore when considering how to approach and respond to applications that threaten to reduce the number of outlets in our area. As a result we have already collaborated on an objection to a proposal to turn the Kings Head at Nafferton into residential accommodation. While that application is still “Pending Consideration” we are both comfortable that we have done all we can on behalf of the branch. The total lack of local opposition to the proposal, however, does not bode well for the Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

future of this long standing pub which is also a Listed Building.

The Kings Head (above) is only one of a number of recent applications affecting pubs in our branch area and details of both it and others can be seen below. One thing that is still very much in my thoughts is the fate of the Bosville Arms (below) at

Rudston just outside Bridlington. After the application was refused by the ERYC Planning Committee (against the recommendation of the planning officer) the applicant appealed to the Planning Inspectorate. The decision on the appeal has still not been issued but is due any day. I and the residents of Rudston await the outcome with bated breath but with some hope as the building has been declared an Asset of Community Value (ACV) by the ERYC and the villagers have formed a group with the specific intention of buying and running the pub as a community venture. While that eventuality is some way off yet the appeal decision is a crucial factor in determining whether it stands any chance of being more than an aspiration. Once the decision is made we will endeavour to have details included on the branch web site and naturally will report on it in the next issue of Pub Mirror.

NEW CLARENCE RE-OPENS FROM JON MAJOR One of the best things I’ve reported on recently is this one. New Clarence on Charles Street has now reopened after a period of closure. Since closing in 2017 when New Theatre closed for a major refurbishment it has had brief periods of reopening under different managers, but, sadly with no success. I am now confident that it has the right person for the job.

reviving it. He has worked there since 2004 and managed it five years ago before moving to Beverley. He is now running Good Beer Guide entry Tiger Inn in Beverley and will spend his time between the two. Allen has recently won North East region publican of the year and narrowly missed out on the north of England crown at a Punch award ceremony in Kendall.

Allen Slinger has now taken on the job of

He has now introduced four handpull ales which also includes at least one from a local brewery. The pub has always been popular with theatregoers going for a pre show meal and pint. I’m sure the New Clarence will once again be a thriving real ale bar.

Real ales and ciders plus much much more Beers and wines for drivers (0 - 0.5% ABV) Licensee Tony offers a friendly welcome to all. Come and enjoy the convivial atmosphere. Food available. Pies from Opening Hours: 4pm-11pm Tuesday; 11am-11pm Wednesday-Saturday; Closed on Sunday & Monday

BRANCH PRESENTATIONS BY ANGELA CAWTE Since the last Pub Mirror I have been privileged to present Shirley Bamforth with runner-up Pub of the Year (Towns) at the Hed’on Inn (below). There were a few issues with transport

for members getting to Hedon but I was well supported by Ken Smith and Pete Mason, with a number of interesting regular customers to keep me company I enjoyed a very warm welcome, as do all customers. The pub was extremely busy to see Shirly receive her well deserved award. Due to commitments to organise the beer festival and other commitments there has not been time or opportunity to make other presentations at the recipient pubs, I am grateful to Natalie Waudby, licensee of the Butcher’s Dog, Driffield the winner in Pub of the Year (Towns) and Jamie Reading licensee of the Whalebone in Pub of the Year (Hull) categories for attending the Beer Festival where I presented them with their certificates. I am confident that most real ale fans in Hull and East Yorkshire know both pubs, some of us know them very well, so it was appropriate to take an opportunity to introduce them both

Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

to a wider audience, which I was able to do as you will see in the photograph. (bottom left). My congratulations to you both. I also took advantage of the festival to raise awareness of the work of Dave Snaith and his team in re-opening Hull’s White Hart. The pub has an amazing interior, so much so that it features in the CAMRA’s National Inventory of Historic Interiors, of which there are 265 overall. Hull and East Yorkshire has seven, the White Hart being one. They are to be thanked for not only re-opening this treasure after many years of closure but for also the sensitive and tasteful way some modernity was added but the history and heritage was preserved for us all to enjoy.

Kim McGivern and Alan Barnes have also taken on the Black Boy (above) also keeping it open after a short temporary closure deserve similar credit as this is also on the inventory, but unfortunately they were not at the presentation.

LOCALE SCHEME EXPLAINED CAMRA LocAle is an initiative which promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of ‘green’ issues. Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally brewed real ale… • Public houses as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits • Consumers who enjoy greater beer choice and diversity • Local brewers who gain from increased sales • The local economy because more money is spent and retained locally • The environment due to fewer ‘beer miles’ resulting in less road congestion and pollution • Tourism due to an increased sense of local identity and pride - let’s celebrate what makes our locality different.

• Bone Machine, Hull (NEW) • Bridlington, Bridlington • Bricknell, Hull • Cathead, Hull • Crafty Little Brewery, Brough • East Yorkshire Beer Co, Beverley • Great Newsome, South Frodingham • Half Moon, Ellerton • Old Mill, Snaith • Raven Hill, Driffield • Spotlight, Snaith • Three Sisters, Brough • Vittles and Company, Hull • Wold Top, Wold Newton • Woolybutt Brewshed, Hull • Yorkshire Brewing Co, Hull • Yorkshire Brewhouse, Hull If your local pub carries any of our breweries’ beer please contact our LocAle Officer Jon Major whose email address is on page 3 of this publication. Our LocAle pubs are listed below and opposite.


Participating pubs are granted accreditation at the discretion of the local branch, Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA, and subject to the licensee agreeing that they will endeavour to ensure at least one locally brewed real ale, as defined by the local branch, is on sale at all times and that only real ale, as defined by CAMRA, can be promoted as a CAMRA LocAle. The Definition of Local: For the purpose of the Hull & East Yorkshire scheme pubs would have to stock a beer from either an East Yorkshire brewery or from a brewery within 25 miles of the pub. Real ales from regional and national breweries as well as from microbreweries can be regarded as “local”, if they are brewed within what the branch has deemed to be the local area.

What is Real Ale? Real Ale is a living beer. It continues to ferment and develop its full flavour in the cask. Real Ale is brewed from traditional ingredients, malt, hops, water and yeast matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the extraneous use of carbon dioxide or nitrogen via hand pumps. Real Ale is also called cask beer or cask conditioned.

Promoting Real Ale

In the early 1970’s, CAMRA coined the term ‘real ale’ to describe traditional draught cask beers, distinguishing them from the processed and highly carbonated beers that were promoted by big brewers at that time.

A core objective for the Campaign for Real Ale is to promote both the consumption and production of real ale. With nearly 2,000 breweries across the UK, you can be sure to find a taste to suit all preferences. From malty, lightly-hopped milds to dark and bitter stouts and porters, there is a beer out there for everyone. To find out more about individual beer styles, please take a look below. If you’re interested in learning more about real ale and the brewing process, why not visit our Learning & Discovery section for more resources or the CAMRA shop, where you can browse the CAMRA library of beer!

Real ale is a ‘living’ product, which is typically produced and stored in a cask container. In comparison to other types of beer that kill off the yeast and artificially inject the beer with CO2 prior to serving, real ale contains live yeast which continues to condition and ferments the beer until it is served.

Did you know that beer can be part of a moderate, healthy lifestyle? Not only is moderate consumption of beer not bad for you but it can actually have many beneficial effects.

Like any artisan product, real ale requires special handling and storing to ensure the quality of taste. Well-kept real ale served at the right temperature should be lively, naturally carbonated and flavourful – representing the pinnacle of brewing art.

Beer is a rich source of vitamins (especially B vitamins), fibre, mineral, and antioxidants which all contribute to a healthy diet. Additionally, beer is the only significant dietary source of hops, so all beneficial effects of hops can only be found in beer.

To recognise real ale, consumers should opt for beer served from the traditional hand-pull or direct from the cask. You can also enjoy real ale served in bottles and cans, as long as they are ‘bottle conditioned’.

In comparison to most alcoholic drinks, beer tends to have a relatively low alcoholic strength and it can play a vital role in a consumer’s quality of life.

Why not visit our online database What Pub to find a pub serving real ale near you?

Drinking alcohol in moderate amounts is effective in reducing stress and tension and this leads to increased feelings of well being.

CHAIRPERSON’S UPDATES FROM ANGELA CAWTE We started the programme of social events and surveying in May as usual this year, but that was possibly for only routine aspect of it. Regular attendees of Open Meetings will know that it is our intention to mix things up a bit. It is not just at the top that CAMRA is trying to change to encourage new people to come forward we are also doing it at grass roots level too. So what are these changes? Initially it is to move away from rigid times and dates for trips, so as to try and give greater numbers opportunities to attend in the hope that a little randomness will find people free to come along. We are also trying to increase the social aspect of these trips, by adding perhaps a visit to an event rather just going from pub to pub to try the beer. We will on occasion when volunteers are available and willing to drive use self-drive transport, this means smaller groups and better chances to mingle and get to know each other. It should also help us reduce costs, and hopefully in turn enable us to offer more trips overall. In the spirit adding other events our first will be to attend, (to have attended depending when you are reading this) the ‘Festivale’ at Great Newsome Brewery. This event has proved increasingly popular with members so with that in mind we are combining visiting a few favourites in the area of the brewery and then to go to the event and stay there rather than rush things. In keeping with established policies, the trips will be offered to attendees of the Open Meetings first, and then spare seats if available will be offered to all. These trips really a great way of getting about to enjoy the many less accessible pubs we have in East Yorkshire. Please join us if only once so you can see for yourself. Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

Pub Preservation Though not in our branch area there is an amazing pub in Leeds saved in the 70’s through consumer pressure, and before CAMRA’s inception, even though the end result is the same. The Victoria and Family Commercial Hotel or the Vic in Leeds (below) is an

architectural dream in terms of etched glass, mirrors, booths and a general air of Victoriana; a place I would choose to visit simply to be able to enjoy the aesthetics. It has been sold recently by Mitchells and Butler and this grand old lady is a little frayed around the edges but it is testament to how important it is to defend our heritage. Because without it future generations will have no idea of what places did look like before ‘shabby chic’ and building bars with scaffolding poles took over. Sitting in the Vic last week made me appreciate the work that little bit more the Pub Protection Officers do everywhere With this in mind I would like to extend specific thanks to Geoff Stevens for coming forward to share the role with Ken Smith. As Ken himself states when there are a lot of planning applications pending that affect the pubs; whether affecting closure or not, it can be a very challenging role. I am very proud to chair a branch of CAMRA whose Pub Preservation officer who has taken the role so much to heart and undertakes the role so proficiently. I wish both Geoff and Ken well in taking the role forward.

SEWERBY AND THE EAST COAST Our first trip of the year was to pubs around Bridlington, in areas that public transport does not reach at times compatible with opening hours or otherwise. On this occasion Mark Bainton did the honors, and my thanks go to him for that, with a self-drive mini-bus. We were lucky we had a bright sunny evening which always makes these trips more enjoyable and after a pleasant drive through we arrived at Bempton. The village is a little way from the famous cliffs, bird sanctuary so there were no puffins to be seen at the White Horse, sadly there was only one real ale available on the night, Pennine’ Tour De Ale, at that point the Tour De Yorkshire had been and gone for 2019, but it was well received and good to see the licensee had chosen something topical. As we were not slowed down by selecting one from the three beers usually offered we went onwards to Flamborough. Flamborough, a traditional Yorkshire fishing village is quite picturesque and signs of its former glory are there to be seen in the ornate architecture of some of the buildings around the two pubs we visited that day. We separated to avoid causing too much disruption to the locals, visiting the Ship Inn or the Royal Dog and Duck (below)and then the other, both of which

this gem of a village pub what it is. I presented a ‘Commitment to Cask’ to them, taking the chance to increase the compliment by not giving them any forewarning. I am pleased to say it worked. In making the award the Branch was able to acknowledge that unfortunately although it meets the standard required for inclusion in the Good Beer Guide not enough members visit and vote to ensure its inclusion. Hopefully more will visit in the future and change this. Charlie and Louise are Marston’s tenants, so their beer comes from the vast portfolio of breweries owned by Marston’s, and it was good to see that they regularly change what is available to take advantage of this. On the day one such choice was Jennings Bitter, rarely seen in this area.

Onwards to Kilham, a village where I mis-spent some of my youth, the village supports two pubs, the Bay Horse, and the Old Star Inn which connected to one of the area’s newest breweries Ravenhill. It was the lure of the opportunity to drink Ravenhill that drew the majority of the party to the Old Star but sadly none was available, Theakston Best Bitter and Timothy Taylor Hoptical Illusion were both appreciated by those who tried them

Perhaps it has something to do with the warm and friendly people we meet; such as

the reason we were there, the beer, it was only here where we were able to try LocAle beers in the form of Wold Top’s Headland Red and Wold Gold, perhaps it was a case saving the best for last. However that is a matter for the individual to decide.

HRACF 2019 FROM ANGELA CAWTE I have been closely involved with all festivals the Branch has held at Holy Trinity/Hull Minster. As a consequence I have had the pleasure of getting to know some of the people there, particularly the Reverends Neal Barnes and Matt Woodcock, Matt has already moved on, taking his unique charms back to York. Shortly before the festival we learned that Neal was to take on a new role at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. It was fitting therefore to make presentation of a gift to Neal (below) as a

really compatible until you consider Tigers refers to Hull City, and the Norwegian aspect refers to their superfans Christoffer and Charlotte (below left). We often have beer on the Bottle Bar from Norwegian Brewery Nogne, so when I offered them a beer and gave them such a beer I didn’t expect to be told they lived 10 minutes away from that brewery. They say it’s a small world, but I didn’t expect it to be that small. I hope the football fixtures will be compatible for them to return next year and they can bring me something from a Hull brewery bought in Oslo! In general terms as the festival itself is concerned, once again we had great support from the people of Hull and beyond, for which we are ever thankful. We hope we have managed to get more of you to taste cask ales and realise that there are some very good beers available. We tried to choose not only local breweries but some from further afield that are not that common in our real ale pubs.

souvenir of the festivals and CAMRA’s place at Holy Trinity, as you will see. On a personal basis I will remember him very fondly but I will always too remember the enthusiasm he has had for our event and the optimism but also the way he extends his gratitude to all who have been involved. I am sure his presence at future festivals will be missed. Meet the Norwegian Tigers, Pete said, OK, I said. So I did but Norway and Tigers aren’t

The festivals as ever take a lot work to organise, particularly before, the Campaign and all our visitors owe Bernie and his trainee Mark a huge debt in making the event happen. Would anyone like to guess what is being said, one to the other in this photograph? Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

TRIP TO THORNBRIDGE & CHESTERFIELD On Bank Holiday Saturday 25th May we had an early start for our Festival Reward trip to Thornbridge Brewery and Chesterfield, organised by our Branch Chairperson Angela Cawte. On arrival through some very small lanes only just wide enough for our coach, we

had a quick group photo (above) before we split into two groups, one for a quick tour of the brewery and the other group a quick tour of the beers from the on site tap bar (below).

I took the opportunity to have a look around the new Thornbridge Brewery which has only been in production from 2009, since moving some of the production from the still in use original brewery at Thornbridge Hall. I was amazed by the amout of steel work around, from fermatation vats to storage containers (top right). The tour starts in a glass walled room which overllooks the brewery where you are given the history of the Brewery. The brewery was founded in in 2005 when the founders Jim Harrison and Simon Webster recruited two young brewers to brew on a second hand 10-barrel based plant in the outbuildings of Thornbridge Hall. Their first brew was Lord Marples, a 4% classic bitter, which Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

went on to become a core Thornbridge beer.

Next, they were tasked with brewing something a little different, an IPA which packed a punch in terms of both flavour and ABV. In mid-2005 Jaipur was born. A 5.9% IPA packed with American hops and like nothing else in the beer industry at that time. Jaipur catapulted Thornbridge into the spotlight, demand outstripped supply and the need for investment in a new Brewery became clear. In 2009 a brand new state of the art brewery was built at Riverside, Bakewell to meet with demand and allow Thornbridge to develop their range of beers. Brewing still takes place today on the original kit at Thornbridge Hall, which allows them to experiment with new brews, create bespoke Hall brews, collaborations and assist the main brewery in Bakewell. As Thornbridge beer began to appear nationwide and export trade developed the increase in trade both at home and abroad has led to 3 expansions between 2009 and today. Thornbridge is once again looking at further expansion, moving the current Tap Room and offices to new units to allow for a canning line in 2019. A brand new Visitor Centre is being developed for Summer 2019 which will include a retail area, extensive bar and food offering. With over 350 Industry recognised awards Thornbridge are proud to be part of such an exciting Craft Beer scene.

BY BERNIE CAWTE The group divided up into two groups one went to the Real Ale Corner - a small beer shop that has 2/3 handpulls and is Chesterfield’s POTY 2019.

Our Branch Chairperson (above) with her take home supply of Thornbridge Jaipur. The rest of the group went to Taphouse (above) a traditional pub with a central bar, etched windows and tiled flooring. Recently refurbished and is now the brewery tap for Barlow brewery, also featuring beers from other local micros. The walk along the ‘Brampton Mile’ continued as the two groups followed each other down into Chesterfield. We entered the curiously named Crafty Dog. This pub after being closed for a long period re-opened in March 2018 after renovation, as the Crafty Dog. Serving ten cask ales and numerous keg products.

We would like to thank Thornbridge for their hospitality and look forward to trying some of the new beers very soon. We continued our journey into Chesterfield and the famous ‘Brampton Mile’, this area of Chesterfield is famous for the number of real ale pubs along Chatsworth Road (A619) in to Chesterfield from the west. This part of the trip was excellently guided by Mark Spight our Social Media Secretary and highly rated beer nerd. The group started off in the Rose & Crown (below) Brampton brewery’s first tied house and

The next pub on the list was the Tramway Tavern (below) another Brampton Brewery

pub, situated in the middle of the Brampton Mile. Cosy and friendly with a central bar, it has eight handpulled beers available at all times. Traditional ciders and perries also on offer. Coming to near the end of the Brampton Mile the two groups converged into the Junction continued on next page



CHESTERFIELD TRIP (CONTINUED) continued from previous page formerly the Masons Arms. The pub mixes both traditional and modern, with a slightly industrial bar back made from scaffold poles. I must admit for some it was too modern, but still another real ale bar. Our last pub before the Town centre of Chesterfield was the Chesterfield Alehouse, Popular micropub that opened in 2013 in a former shop unit, serving six real ales covering all the major styles, plus cider and perry. 12 keg beers are also on tap (mostly Keykeg). Small scale but friendly and welcoming. Winner of Town Centre Pub of the Year 2015 By now we were beginning to slow down as most had not eaten for about 5 hours so again we split up this time more in search of food then beer. A few went in to the Portland Hotel a JD Wetherspoon hotel with a mock-Tudor exterior and spacious interior which was very busy owing to its town centre location. So busy that we could not all sit together so some of us went searching for somewhere else. I must say it was well worth it as we came across the Market Pub (below). A large L-shaped room

all pleasently surprised as we were served with some restaurant standard meals. Well cooked and presented just as you would expect in a restaurant. I would certainly recommend this pub for both food and drink. We were now getting towards our time to catch the coach so we all met up in the Pig and Pump, formerly White Swan and re-opened late November 2018 as the Pig & Pump. Located next to the ‘Crooked Spire’ a vast range of cask and keg ales with its regular beer, Oakham Citra and 12 changing beers. A nice way to end our look at Chesterfield’s town centre pubs. Our last pub of the trip was to the Neptune Beer Emporium formerly the Neptune Inn (below) just on the way out of Chesterfield

and a bit of a challenge for our coach driver Nick as it is a backstreet local. This compact pub serves excellent beer in two drinking areas either side of a central bar. The real ales are complemented by an extensive range of continental and craft beers on draught and in bottles, all displayed on a very descriptive chalk board. with dark wood fittings, flagstone floor and a central bar. Popular and friendly, serving up to eight real ales from local micros. Chesterfield CAMRA Town Centre Pub of the Year 2011. This pub served 3 regular beers and 5 changing beers but again was very busy. But we did find reserved seating that was available for a couple of hours. We ordered our food and expected the standard pub grub, but we were Hull and East Yorkshire CAMRA

It was certainly a fitting end to our trip to Chesterfield and I for one will certainly be going back some time soon. Finally I would just like to say thanks again to all those that helped at this years festival and all who came on the trip. It was a great day for all, we must do it again next year, but maybe just the trip???

WHATPUB Ah well that’s the Eurovision Song Contest over for another year with the regular disappointment for the UK entry. Europe no longer likes our entries and I guess we suffer from the increased tactical voting that is going on since Europe fragmented into independent states in the last 30 years.

Whatpub is different because the pubs featured on it have been independently added and updated by thousands of CAMRA volunteers and it includes over 96% of Britain's real ale pubs. At present there are over 35,500 pubs nationally listed on the site. We are encouraging local members to use Whatpub regularly and to score the beers in the pubs they visit for a very practical reason.

It seems that everyone is a critic these days. Buy anything on-line and you quickly get the ‘how did we do’ follow up email. Prime time terrestrial TV is dominated by talent shows asking you to phone in your vote because ‘your vote matters and your vote counts’.

The Hull & East Yorkshire branch covers a very wide area and around 220 pubs serving real ale and all of these pubs are considered for inclusion in the national Good Beer Guide and the local Pub of the Year contests. It’s impossible for volunteers to cover all these pubs in a year, although through survey trips we try to ensure as a wide selection are visited as we can. Consequently, one of the major but not the only consideration in drawing up the long list for pubs to be included in the Good Beer Guide are the scores recorded on

CAMRA too seeks your opinion through its Whatpub site. There are other beer rating sites and Apps where you can record what pubs you have been in, what beers you have drunk and can even earn badges to appeal to your inner boy scout (or girl guide) but this is the one we rely upon for serious opinions.

It is also great to be able to promote a charity very close to my heart in the Three Bear’s Foundation ( ThreeBearsFoundation) by donating 5p for every pint sold to them. This will help further raise awareness of the amazing work that has been carried out by Mark Burn and others raising thousands of pounds already in the fight against pancreatic cancer. The beer is a refreshing blonde ale with a citrusy finish that at 3.8% is perfect session beer for the summer”. Brewery Manager Ryan Truswell further added; “We are delighted to be able to create a beer with Jack and the Three Bears Foundation. We are hoping that you enjoy it just as much as we did in creating it. We’re incredibly proud to have a capped Yorkshire cricketer supporting our brand, as we are very much proud of our Yorkshire roots. We’ve choosen the malts for the brew from acclaimed Yorkshire maltsters, Thomas Fawcetts”. As well as being available direct from the Brewery, Jack’s Batch 34 has also been picked up by a national wholesaler to be promoted throughout July. So hopefully you’ll be able to try Jacks very own beer where ever you are, be it St.Ives or The Isle of Skye.

Our latest campaign is all about visiting your local – and getting involved is as easy as grabbing a pint!



If your idea of a perfect British summer involves a pint and a pub-garden, then you’re in luck.

THE FIGHT CONTINUES Did you know that a third of the cost of a pint is made up of tax? Pubs facing a triple tax whammy of one of the highest rates beer duty in Europe, rapidly rising business rates, and VAT. This high level of tax is squeezing publicans and forcing them to either put up prices for consumers or close their doors forever. 14 pubs are now closing their doors each week. As the UK prepares to exit the European Union, the Government will have the freedom to reduce Beer Duty specifically in pubs – levelling the playing field between the price of beer sold in social, community settings and cheap supermarket alcohol consumed at home. This move is one of three key measures CAMRA believes the Government needs to take urgently to halt the tide of pub closures. It would ensure that pubs are supported, while tax isn’t lowered on the unregulated off trade.

It gives local people the chance to run and grow a business that meets the need of individual communities, such as by offering other local services such as shops, post offices or a local library.

Did you know that the pub sector overpays by £500 million in business rates each year? Businesses in England are required to pay a tax to their local council based on the value of the property that they occupy – these are called business rates. In 2016 40% of pubs were handed an increase in their business rates bill – the result of which is that many have had to put up their prices for consumers to cover their rates increases, or in some cases close for good. Pubs currently pay 2.8% of the business rates bill but only account for 0.5% of total business turnover, which is an overpayment of around £500 million by the sector each year. CAMRA is calling on the Government to conduct a full review of how the system works – as promised in their manifesto. This needs to look at how to address the current system where pubs are unfairly burdened.

What can you do? You can check out our national website and you can learn about CAMRA’s campaign to save the Great British Pub from extinction, as 14 pubs close their doors each week, or just join us. The value of pubs cannot be overstated. The pub and beer industry supports nearly 900,000 jobs in the UK and contributes £23.6bn to the UK economy annually. Help us to help them.

Did you know that some communities run their local pub themselves?

Mail Group -

There are now around 100 pubs across the UK owned by a local community group and an additional 10 pubs that are leased by a community group and run by their local community group.
